Although the UK Government has removed restrictions on 19/07/21, we have decided to retain some restrictions to help our congregation feel safe.

Before you come

Please register for the service using ChurchSuite – choose the service from the Worship Services page and follow instructions. You don’t need to have a ChurchSuite account to register. Why are we asking you to register?

Please also take a look at the Personal Risk Assessment which you can use to make an informed decision about whether to attend or not. This is for your use – we don’t need you to submit this to us.


What to expect when you arrive

Wear a face covering

Please wear a face covering when moving around the premises, unless you’re exempt. You can remove your face covering once you’re seated in the church.

More information about face coverings and exemption guidelines

Choose where to sit

The back 2 rows in the church are reserved for those who feel more vulnerable.

These rows are specially allocated to be behind the majority of the congregation and closer to the doors for ventilation.

Cold outside? Wear warm clothes

Doors to the church may be open during the service to increase ventilation. Therefore, please make sure you dress accordingly

Sanitise your hands

Please use the automatic hand sanitisers both when you enter the building and before you leave.

Sanitisers are located next to all entrances.


During the service

Maintain social distancing

Please respect that people may not be comfortable with others being close to them, so please ensure you keep at distance between yourself and others.

Please leave at least 1 empty chair between you and other groups.

Congregational singing

Congregational singing is permitted.

Water

Please bring your own bottled water.

Toilets

The toilets are available. We’re operating a one-out, one-in policy, so please ensure the toilets are vacant before entering.

Offertory

Unfortunately, we can’t accept cash gifts at present. Please use online banking or ChurchSuite Donate for your gifts. Please speak to the Church Treasurer for more details


After the service

Refreshments

Refreshments are served after the service in the Wesley Hall. Please take a seat at a table (no more than 6 people per table) and refreshments will be brought to you.

Please leave by the marked exit

Move away from the doors to allow others to exit

Prayer

If you’d like someone to pray for you after the service, please ask a steward or the minister.


Why do you need to register for services?

We still have limited capacity in the church so it’s important for us to know how many people will be attending services.

We’re required to keep a record of attendees for NHS Test & Trace. If you would prefer your details are not recorded, please let us know before attending.

Please be aware that if you register for a service and don’t attend, you’re potentially stopping someone else from attending!
